Pros

Putnam Associates is a top strategy consulting firm with a great work/life balance - analysts and associates can expect less than 25% travel - this is great when compared to the sometimes 75% or more travel of lager consulting firms... another positive is the Fortune 500 clients and diverse case work in the pharma, biotech, and medical devices space. The industry is constantly in flux, interesting, and new news is always available to influence decision makers and large corporations. Putnam does a great job of fusing business talent and economic know how with years of experience in health care and science and passes this on to employees.

Cons

In the suburbs rather than downtown in the city of Boston

Advice to Management

Continue keeping junior members of staff aware of their current strengths and wakenesses, prospects for promotion, and update them on their status in a transparent way, to keep employees' value of their job at the highest level.

    Pros

    For anyone looking to understand the healthcare space, Putnam is a terrific starting point. The firm continues to put out top-notch work, and prides itself on hiring not only smart employees, but people that fit the culture. Most of the training is on the job, so you'll be spending most of your time initially with other junior staff. Great opportunities to advance and manage, which is a true differentiation vs. other boutique consulting firms. Very good work-life balance, considering the high-touch service environment. Historically, great exit opportunities (either in industry or bschool) for people who stick around and do well.

    Cons

    Depending on which partners you work with, Putnam can be a very different experience due to different expertise. Historically, there have been instances of people being pigeonholed, but the firm is actively working to improve development and diversity of cases.
